The Jewel of the West Coast: Safeco Field

If there’s one city on the west coast I could call home, it’s Seattle. The mild weather, the best coffee in the world, and the wonderful coast just make it a great place to live. The city’s ballparks are also something to cherish.

I’ve been to Seattle for baseball once. It was the final stop on my west coast baseball swing. We caught two games — a night game and a day game — before heading out of town. One thing that makes this park a great place to watch a game is the ease in getting there. We took public transportation (Sound Transit) and arrived at the park with ease. The stop for the light rail is literally called “stadium”, how much easier could it get?

As for the park, it’s settled in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle, which means South of Downtown. The stadium opened in 1999, and it is true to Seattle. With a very open feel to the stadium, it empowers the feelings of the city that the Mariners call home. It’s a great place to watch a game.
